Born with Digital DNA: Understanding and Treating the iGeneration
By Dave Verhaagen, PhD
Texting, Tweeting, Facebook, iPods, iPads….there is no one better that understands our children’s generation (the iGeneration), then child and adolescent expert Dr. Dave Verhaagen! Each generation is different, but the iGeneration stands out in its moment-to-moment use of technology. These kids use technology to manage relationships, solve problems, access immediate information, and have fun, all in ways that previous generations never dreamed possible. All of this has both positive and negative implications for these kids, their parents, and those who care for them. This workshop takes a balanced and honest look at this new crop of teens, and discusses effective treatment approaches and strategies for reaching this remarkable generation.
1. Participants will be able to describe at least five unique characteristics of the iGeneration.
2. Participants will be able to identify at least four positive trends for the iGeneration.
